Hurry! It's your last chance to improve GCSE citizenship
The citizenship GCSE consultations close today and tomorrow. Citizenship teachers share our unhappiness with the government's current proposals, so please respond to the consultations to help make them better.
Ofqual's consultation on assessment closes tonight (Wednesday, 11.45pm) and the Department for Education's consultation on content closes tomorrow afternoon (Thursday, 5pm).
But we've made it easy for you! In partnership with Democratic Life and the Association for Citizenship Teaching, we have prepared example responses for both consultations, specifically on the questions related to citizenship.
With your help, we can make the new citizenship GCSE much stronger.
When you click ‘submit' at the end of each form, the response will be sent directly to the relevant body (ie DfE or Ofqual) and copied to Democratic Life.
Of course, if you prefer, you can edit, re-write or replace our response entirely with your own.
Our main concerns are outlined here, or you can read our own responses in full:
